    Well....

    I guess everyone knows it by now but the first A321 is ready to be shipped to Iran within weeks! They test fly it in Germany now!

    and here is for you Charmahal jan......the tiny airplanes you wished for villages! Apparently they've ordered 20 ATRs for domestic use:

    I would have rathered Iran to simplay buy a a bunch of A320s
    some turbo-props like the ones ATR is some to deliver which is useful for super small airports.

    and then many many regional jets (the planes smaller than A320 or 737 by at least 50-80 capacity).

    by the way the entire delivery schedule seems to be totally political. Iran likely paid a bit more to ensure Rouhani gets his new plane arrival optics before he announces for reelection.

    Even with that sort of order, there would be lots of people complaining and criticizing! One very usual comment would be, look what we had before the revolution and what we have now! How much we have sunk, etc. etc.

    I'm just happy we're finally getting new planes so trips can be both cheap and safe!

    As for the political delivery time point, it may very well be true. The official reason as I hear however is that they were originally built for another company but they either cancelled or reduced their order. So they went ahead and finished them for Iranair instead.

    A321 is a very reasonable plane. I wonder options they elected to go with.

    Iran can actually get away with having no wide body planes and stick to A320x 737x line of planes.

    the range is enough to fly all the way from Tehran to most neighboring countries capitals. (exception of moscow,Dehli)

    I hear this particular plane and another one are of cancelled orders of another airline ,another 98 would be manufactured for Iran air , I think they do need some long range planes which is in their order books from both manufacturers to fly long distance specially to Canada and the possibly USA in the near future and not to forget far east and maybe down under too .

    I agree with you about that! Unfortunately though, they have cancelled the big A380 order. I guess they gave up on the idea of upgrading the airports for it any time soon. Boeing 747s are still in their order though.

    That is not a big deal for Iran , Boeing 777 and A350 will be sufficient for long range .

    They have ordered only 30 777s and 16 A350s. 146 of their orders are narrow-body airplanes!

    and from what I read now, it seems they have even dropped the 747 order! I have no clue why!
